Turns out, it’s a no – at least for the back half of season 7.
Executive producer Marli Davis revealed that fans will not see the couple in the remaining episodes.
“You know, Lauren was busy with a couple of other things as was Cesar, so you know that was purposely in talking with those actors and where we decided to take this season, we don’t see their stories unfortunately,” she told Express.
Lauren also spoke with Digital Spy about a possible return to the show, hopefully in the eighth and final season.
“I feel like I’ve grown up on the show a little bit and I deeply love everyone on it, and I love the production, and I love our little family of four children that we have at the age of like twenty-something, and how we just pop them out seamlessly, and it’s just wonderful,” she shared. “I love César and I think he feels the same way. We both feel very connected to our characters, and especially with the fans. It feels like we’ve grown up with these fans.”
She does say that she would “absolutely” return for season eight, if asked.
“I’ve been getting a lot of messages online saying, ‘We miss you’ and I keep wanting to be like, ‘me too,’” Lauren added. “But then you never know how close to get. It feels weird to not be in it, but it’s just the way the world lay at that time and it happens and it’s fine. I’m so glad the show is going well.”
Outlander season 7, part 2, will return in 2024.
